The welcome on arrival was very good, and the room was lovely with great views of the gardens and the fells, if we sat down near the window the view of the lakes was good.
We had complementary Pimms and strawberries served in the lounge area which was lovely. Everything went smoothly for our first night's evening meal, our order being taken by the bar staff and very soon being collected by the restaurant staff, the menus were very good with plenty of choice and the food and wine where delicious.
The breakfast next morning was very good, hot and tasty. We asked if we could book a lake view table for the evening meal which was agreed upon.We had a lovely day out at Keswick which is very close. we came back and had a swim in the lovely warm indoor pool.
On coming down for the evening meal the lounge bar staff served us drinks and then took our restaurant order for the restaurant. Forty minutes later we were still sat there waiting(as were another couple who had ordered at the same time), One of the bar staff then said have you not been taken through to the restaurant. We were then rushed through, being told we could not have the lake view table, not much of an apology for being late. Our starters were lovely, then came our main meals,my husbands lamb dish was perfect but my duck breast was almost raw and could not be cut into. The restaurant manager was very efficient giving me either a choice of cooking the duck breast more or having a different choice, I chose the lamb which came very quickly and was perfect.The rest of the meal was very good and we had coffees in the garden.
We then went to bed and were fast asleep when the fire alarm went off at 12.55, this luckily was a false alarm but we know that if there is a fire we would certainly be woken up.(GOOD)
Check out the next morning was very quick and efficient. We would love to stay here again, without the fire alarm but with 'promised / confirmed' seating arrangements.
